This is a rather odd dream oriented thriller. It's about a woman who is having strange dreams about a little girl being abducted. Of course shortly after her own daughter Rebecca is kidnapped and then murdered shortly after. Then she starts to realize that her mind may somehow be linked with the killer as she gets flashes of what the killer is up to next. Of course nobody believes her and she suffers a nervous breakdown and so on (I don't want to wreck any more). It's not the most exciting movie, but it's effective enough, and it's kinda fun to watch, I do think more could have been done with it, and a little more excitement wouldn't have hurt it either!
